Made In USAMelodies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A funky soul band with a bit of a clubby groove – and one that features some great male harmony vocals behind lead singer Jann Harrison! Harrison's got a very light style of singing – almost soprano at points, which makes the male voices especially welcome – as they help ground the grooves much more deeply down towards the basslines that are such a strong part of the album. The set's got a really classic De-Lite Records feel from the 70s – a groove that's right up there with the Kay-Gees at their best – with riffing guitar, bumping bass, smooth keyboards, and tight horns over the top. Titles include "Gotta Get A High", "Shake Your Body", "Try To Find A Way", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Sexy Lady", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Melodies". CD also features bonus 12" mixes of "Melodies" and "Shake Your Body". CD

Orchestra USA/John LewisDebut ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
The first recordings ever from Orchestra USA – the landmark third stream jazz group co-led by John Lewis and Gunther Schuller! The group sprang out of Schuller and Lewis' preoccupations with bringing jazz to a more serious environment – merging traits of 20th century classical with jazz-based improvisation – in a format that included standout solo players, as well as larger backings from strings and woodwinds. And while some of that group's recordings were a bit dull, this one's totally great – not nearly as stiff and academic as you'd think – with some really strong solo work on saxes, and a soulful approach that gets past any formalism that could mar the proceedings. Players include Eric Dolphy, Phil Woods, Leo Wright, Nick Travis, and Jim Hall – and titles include "Three Little Feelings (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Milesign", "Milano", "Natural Affection", and "Donnie's Theme". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

USA/European ConnectionUSA/European Connection ... LP
Marlin/TK, 1979. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Soaring disco grooves from the legendary Boris Midney – a set that was virtually built by Midney from the ground up – layering instruments over a funky club beat, then forming the grooves into songs in the process! The result is superb studio work from the height of the disco generation – a great illustration of the way that Boris used the studio as musicians might use an instrument – both to create and compose, always with an eye on the end result that would be pressed up on record! Tracks are long, and virtually work together as one extended number – and titles include "I'd Like To Get Closer", "Do Me Good", "Join The Dance", and "There's A Way Into My Heart".

Two hard and heavy grooves from James & The Flames! "You Don't" is a romping R&B number with a scratchy guitar on the groove – pumping up and down nicely with a jagged edge under the harmonies. Even better is "Mashed Potatoes USA" – a reall raw groover with a tenor on the beat, jaggedly popping under James' vocals as he takes a musical trip around the USA! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JVC (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... About September 20, 2017
Sublime live work from this legendary fusion combo – a group who were to Japanese jazz what the Crusaders were to the US at the end of the 70s! The album features the group recorded live in the US – working in especially soulful territory that features lots of Fender Rhodes and clavinet from Takehiro Honda – plus great horn lines that flow, soar, and sparkle wonderfully with a perfect balance between tightness and soulful expression. This Japanese version features the full double-length album – not issued in the US – with a total of 9 tracks that include "Coke Screw", "Jay Walk", "Super Safari", "Autumn Dreams", "Racing Around", "Wind Jammer", and "Orange Sunrise".

Columbia, 1984. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The album where Bruce Springsteen really settles in as The Boss – gritty, chest-pumping anthems all the way here on this one! Born In The USA is so exuberant and full of life, even when Bruce is angry –as he is on the title track – his charisma is so strong that you'd be forgiven for thinking he's cheerleading, when he's really criticizing. Strong stuff, even if you might want to skip over couple of overplayed numbers – with "Cover Me", "Darlington County", "I'm On Fire", "I'm Going Down", "My Hometown", "Glory Days", "Born In The USA", "No Surrender", "Bobby Jean", "Dancing In The Dark", and "Working On The Highway".

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $29.99 31.99
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

VariousChartbusters USA – Special Country Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic entry in this great series from Ace Records – a set that looks at some of the bigger country music hits of the late 60s, but in a way that moves way past the obvious and iconic! Sure, there's some well-known tracks here, but there's also a number that broke big at the time, but fell off the radar over the years – especially some of the unusual hits by big stars, or standout numbers by artists who maybe never hit the bigtime again. The variety of styles and themes is great – and really reflects some of the politics and anxieties of the time – and overall, given the helpful notes, the whole thing is similar to the excellent Dim Lights, Thick Smoke, & Hillbilly Music series on Bear Family. Titles include "The First Thing Every Morning" by Jimmy Dean, "Flowers On The Wall" by The Statler Brothers, "Girl On The Billboard" by Del Reeves, "Singing My Song" by Tammy Wynette, "Mr Walker It's All Over" by Billie Jo Spears, "I Wanna Live" by Glen Campbell, "Skip A Rope" by Henson Cargill, "What's Made Milwaukee Famous" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Understand Your Man" by Johnny Cash, "Miller's Cave" by Bobby Bare, "Almost Persuaded" by David Houston, "Begging To You" by Marty Robbins, "Carroll County Accident" by Porter Wagoner, "Chug A Lug" by Roger Miller, "Okie From Muskogee" by Merle Haggard, and "Six White Horses" by Tommy Cash.

King/Universal (Japan), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer early work by James Brown – one of the best pre-funk albums on King, and really stuffed with great obscure numbers! The "tour" part is a bit of a misnomer – as the album only features studio work, not live tracks – but it is a great excuse for the record to have a cool cover with James in front of a map of the USA! Tracks are a mix of instrumentals and hard soul numbers – all very raw and rootsy, much more in the early style of James' best R&B work. Titles include "Sticky", "Cross Firing", "Choo Choo Locomotion", "Doin The Limbo", "Joggin Along", "I've Got Money", "Like A Baby", and "Three Hearts In A Tangle". CD

Monty AlexanderWith Love ... LP
MPS/PA USA, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Classic MPS session by funky pianist Monty Alexander! This one's filled with moody trio material, played by Alexander's tight little group with Senator Eugene Wright on bass and Bobby Durham on drums. Wright's basslines are nice and warm, and roll off in a groovy way with Alexander's tightly punctuated piano lines. The LP includes the tracks "Monticello", "We've Only Just Begun", "Love Story", and "Summer Of 42" – all done in nice groovy versions. The album was issued in Europe with the title We've Only Just Begun – but this is the US version, with a different title but the same cover. LP, Vinyl record album

PA USA/MPS, 1969. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A classic session for MPS, one of the few labels smart enough to ever make bassist Richard Davis a leader on a session! The set is arguably his best record as a leader, and it features a great group, playing in a number of different configurations. Players include Freddie Hubbard, Roland Hanna, Louis Hayes, and Jerry Dodgion – and the playing's a nice mix of modernism and soul jazz, with the kind of approach that Hubbard was using on a lot of his Atlantic records at the time. Titles include "Milktrain", "What Is It", "Toe Tail Moon", and "A Child Is Born". LP, Vinyl record album

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... LP
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. LP, Vinyl record album

We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops. Includes "A Game Called Who Am I", "Cosmic Remembrance", "A Cosmic Telephone Call", "From The Angel Liesle & The Buddha" and "How Can I Tell My Guru?" LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownRoots Of A Revolution ... CD
Polydor, 1960s. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
A great collection of 60s work by James – one that goes way past the hits, to show the birth of the funky style that would forever be James' calling card in the 70s! The package starts in the earlier King R&B years – with tracks that are hard and soulful, yet which also have a unique approach to rhythm that was the beginning of Brown's experiments in funk. As the set moves on, it runs through an assortment of 60s hard soul styles – with touches of soul jazz, sock-boogaloo, and more – all coming together to serve up a great portrait of James' early genius! The package has a number of wonderful vocal cuts, some instrumental bits, and even some rare studio dialogue – and it features tracks pulled from a number of rare singles and long out of print LPs, complete with a killer booklet too! Titles include "Baby You're Right", "Doodle Bee", "This Old Heart", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Cried", "I Don't Care", "Shout & Shimmy", "Mashed Potatoes USA", "Maybe The Last Time", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Just You & Me Darling", "And I Do Just What I Want", "Hold It", "Begging Begging", "That Dood It", and "Chonnie On Chon". 43 tracks in all!

Stelvio CiprianiRhythmical Movement (with bonus download) ... LP
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA".

Polydor/Universal (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $29.99 33.99
Fantastic early work from Alex Harvey – later a big force in British blues and rock, but here at the head of an incredibly cool combo that's drenched in soul! The tunes are short, sharp, and plenty soulful – very much inspired by R&B work of the 50s, but served up with some of the leaner soul modes that were grabbing the London mod scene during the mid 60s – often with a strong tenor getting the chance to solo on many numbers, and these raw vocals that sound like they must have been an influence on Robert Plant. The album was recorded live, with a really raw sound – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Rock", "Framed", "Backwater Blues", "Going Home", "Teensville USA", "I Just Wanna Make Love To You", "The Blind Man", and "I Ain't Worrying Baby".

Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A crucially overlooked group from the early years of the British prog scene – and one that features some totally wonderful turbo-charged Hammond! The group's led by organist Tim Hinkley – a player who probably started out in the same soul-drenched world as Brian Auger, but who's taking off here at a much more virtuostic level – maybe close to the territory of bigger artists like Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman in his scope, but a lot more down to earth in his execution – given the current of soul that still seems to stay in his music. Vocals are part of that mix – and almost feel a bit like when Auger started to sing – and the album's got some great horn arrangements from David Palmer, who uses the instruments well enough to avoid any jazz rock cliches. Guitar is nice and fuzzy – and really gives the record a nicely heavy sound – and titles include "One Step On", "Night Today", "Little Message", "USA", and "Rock N Roll Man". CD features two bonus tracks – "Night Today (alt)" and "Rock N Roll Man (single version)". CD

Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

Prestige/New Jazz, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An excellent album from the great Pony Poindexter – one of his few dates as a leader, and a real lost killer from early 60s Prestige! Pony's working here on alto and soprano sax – the latter of which sounds especially nice – all sharp-edged and angular, and cast out over some very groovy rhythms from Gildo Mahones on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Jimmie Smith on drums! The "Big Ones" in the title are some of the grooviest pop tunes of the 60s – like "Fly Me To The Moon", "Midnight In Moscow", "Moon River", and "Twistin USA" – and they're given a jaunty soul-jazz approach by Pony, who plays some of the best soprano and alto sax he's ever recorded!

Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

Sylvie Vartan was one of the grooviest singers in France during the 60s – part of that great wave of female talent that also included Francoise Hardy and France Gall – and although her French recordings are very well-remembered and reissued, she also cut a number of more obscure English language tracks at the time! This collection is the first to focus on those gems – work recorded in New York, Nashville, and London – all different spots directed by RCA, where Sylvie picked up new grooves, different production, and some styles that really expanded her sound! Almost all the numbers here still have that swinging 60s French pop approach – mod at times, slinky at others – but the shift to English lyrics makes for a mighty nice change – and opens the singers charms to an even bigger audience than ever. CD features 25 tracks, detailed notes, and even includes a few unissued titles from the time – with tunes that include "Love Has Laid His Hands On Me", "Whirlpool", "Gonna Cry", "Run For The Sun", "USA", "I Heard Somebody Say", "Another Heart", "He Understands Me", "It's Not A Game", and "I Wish You Well".

VariousRock & Roll Music – The Songs Of Chuck Berry ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Chuck Berry may have been a hell of a hitmaker on his own – but he also helped lots of other folks hit the heights, too – thanks to the fantastic songs he penned over the years! Berry's original versions are the stuff of early rock and roll gold – but the tunes here take off in all sorts of directions – from rockabilly to country, garage, psych, soul, and even a bit of folk as well – served up by a surprisingly large amount of artists you might not never associate with Chuck's music! The package is definitely one of the most striking in the "songwriter" series from Ace Records – and like the others, it's done with a similar sort of depth – including notes on all the many unusual records included in the collection. Titles include "Roll Over Beethoven" by Helen Dixon, "Around & Around" by Swinging Blue Jeans, "Nadine" by The Bunch, "I'm Talking About You" by The Remains, "Oh Baby Doll" by The Pretty Things, "Come On" by Ian Gomm, "Memphis" by Don Covay, "You Never Can Tell" by John Prine, "The Promised Land" by Dave Edmunds, "Beautiful Delilah" by The Count Bishops, "Back In The USA" by MC5, "You Can't Catch Me" by Sleepy LaBeef, "Sweet Little Sixteen" by The Hollies, "Almost Grown" by Syndicate Of Sound, "Too Much Monkey Business" by Elvis Presley, and "No Money Down" by John Hammond.

VariousShot In The Dark – Nashville Jumps – Blues & Rhythm On Nashville's Independent Labels 1945 to 1955 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 40s-Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... $109.99
An amazing 8 CD collection of rare rhythm & blues, jump tunes, and gospel-tinged soul from the Nashville independent scene of the 40s and 50s! Long, LONG before "Music City USA" was churning product the way it does today, Nashville had a true working class ethic along with the standard biz behavior, with lots of indies with full rosters of amazing artists that never got their just rewards. It wasn't just country down there – labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic, Excello and others represented the soulful sounds of Nashville, and these long lost treasures are in many cases getting their first legit reissues here! 7 CDs of music, thematically assorted, and a bonus disc with interviews. Also includes the most massive, well done book we've ever seen included in a set like this – 276 hardbound glossy pages, full of photos and richly written bios and history. It's the kind of thing you might see for around $100 in a bookstore! But here you also get close to 100 tunes, including "Baby Don't You Want To Go" by Sherman Williams, "Three Little Girls" by Cecil Gant, ""Bewildered" by the Red Miller Trio, "When You're Baby Gets Up And Goes" by BB King, "Late Hour Blues" by the Bluejacks, "Almost Boogie" by Louis Brooks, "Mississippi Boogie" by Julius King, "You've Gotta Stop This Mess" by Fat Man with Sunnyland Slim, and tons more!

VariousWest End Story Vol 3 – A Third Edition Of Original Full Length Versions Of History Making Dance Classics From The Label That Started It All ... LP
West End (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Classic club cuts that still sound wonderful all these many years later – tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – and the sorts of grooves that were a big inspiration to the rise of house music too! The package brings together a stunning selection of cuts from the West End label – an imprint who was maybe second only to Salsoul for its importance to the New York clubs, but also one who maybe kept more of a commitment to the underground, both in the themes of its music and in the way it really let the DJs and mixers do their thing! Tracks on this third volume include "When You Touch Me (Larry Levan mix)" by Taana Gardner, "Let Me Feel Your Heartbeat" by Glass, "Music Turns Me On (Tee Scott mix)" by Sparque, "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan" by Master Boogies Song & Dance, "Disco Dance (Tom Moulton mega mix)" by Michele, "Chillin Out" by Inez Broosk, "Speak Well (Tom Moulton mix)" by Philly USA, and "Keep On Dancin (Francois K Phase 2)" by Forrrce.

✨✧ Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

1st & 15th, 2017. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first of a proposed trilogy from Chi's Lupe Fiasco – and his first official independent album after stepping away from Atlantic! Lupe had concerns over the major label system stifling his creativity, so it should be no surprise that he's as lyrically-focused and deeply thoughtful as ever here – but what's suprising is how immediately engaging the production is, considering the move away from commericial expectations – it's accessible ear candy on a surface level, but soul baring in lyricism – win-win! Guests include Ty Dolla $ign, Bianca Sings, Rick Ross & Big KRIT, Salim and others – and titles include "Dopamin Lit", "NGL", "Promise", "Made In The USA", "It's Not Design", "Wild Child", "More Than My Heart", "Law", "Kill", "Tranquillo" and more.

✨✧ George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 13.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD

Roy BurrowesJamaican Jazz Crusaders ... LP
JMA, 1969. Very Good+ ... $69.99
An amazing little record – not just for the music itself, which is inherently great – but also for its straight jazz presentation of players you might know in more of a reggae-based setting! The album's a smoking set of hardbop numbers, played with plenty of soul – by a combo billed as the Jamaican Jazz Crusaders – featuring Roy Bubbles Burrows on trumpet, Ernst Ranglin on guitar, Roland Alphonso on tenor, Aubrey Adams on piano, Harold Williams on bass, and Carl McLeod on drums. The format's a bit unusual, in that the album's bracketed by interviews and introductions from Jamaican jazz DJ Nevil Willoughby – but in the core are some great performances, with very inventive arrangements, especially in the way Ranglin's guitar is used – on titles that include "The Highest Mountain", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Split Kick", and "Round Midnight".

Fantastic funky jazz from the Crusaders! The set includes some of their best cuts from their years at Blue Thumb – when they were slicking things up a bit, but still staying pretty true to their soul jazz roots. There's a lot of nice electric funky numbers, and more than a few hip hop samples on here! Titles include "Stomp & Buck Dance", "Greasy Spoon", "Scratch", "Soul Caravan", "Keep That Same Old Feeling", "Chain Reaction", "Hard Times", and "So Far Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CrusadersCrusaders 1 ... LP
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Sweet funky Crusaders – one of the first records the group made after dropping the "Jazz" from their name, and a soulful electric set through and through! The group still have that tightly-crafted soul jazz sound that made their late 60s recordings so great – but they're also stretching out here in more of a 70s electric funk mode – letting the keyboards of Joe Sample really set the tone for most of the numbers, as Wilton Felder's basslines weave with the drums of Stix Hooper to create a set of really great tracks. The double-length album is overflowing with great numbers – and in addition to the contributions of the core quartet, the album also features guitar from Larry Carlton, David T Walker, and Arthur Adams – plus a bit of extra bass from Chuck Rainey! The hip sound is a bit like some of Hugh Masekela's best jazz-based work for Chisa – and titles include "Full Moon", "Sweet Revival", "Mud Hole", "It's Just Gotta Be That Way", "Three Children", "Mosadi", and "So Far Away".

MoWest, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great record from The Crusaders – and an album that's really the start of the group's strong run of smooth funky jazz for the 70s – a very vibrant little set, even though the black and white cover makes the whole thing look a bit understated! The album's got the group dropping the "jazz" from their name, but it's still a great bit of LA funky soul jazz – with electric keyboards from Joe Sample that are very much in a late 60s mode, plus guitar from David T Walker and Arthur Adams, and bass from Chuck Rainey, in addition to fine work by regulars like Stix Hooper, Wayne Henderson, and Wilton Felder. Tracks have a tight and uncomplicated funky approach, with a slightly smooth edge – and titles include "Do Yourself A Favor", "Try A Little Harder", "Cold Duck Eddie", "Way Back Home", and the Afro-funky groover "Alekesam"!

One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely Dan album – no surprise, given the work they'd done on sessions for that group – and the title cut is the massive extended version of "Street Life", with killer vocals from Randy Crawford – and other titles include "My Lady", "Night Faces", "The Hustler", and "Rodeo Drive".

Susana EstradaSexadelic Disco Funk Sound Of Susana Estrada ... CD
Sauce/Espacial (Spain), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet sexy sounds from Spanish singer Susana Estrada – a performer known for her famous erotic work of the 70s, stepping out here in a set of clubby tracks for the disco generation! The early 80s date of these tracks mark Susana as maybe being a bit later than some of the porn stars turned disco divas of the late 70s – but Estrada's overall approach is a bit different too – maybe a bit wittier, and following in the mode of the liberated sensuality she presented in her writings and theatrical work. Of course, the end result is still some wonderfully breathy female vocals over disco grooves – on tracks sung entirely in Spanish – with titles that include "Machos", "Voy Desnunda", "Espacial", "Hagamoslo Juntos", "Gozame Ya", "Quitate El Sosten", and "Mi Chico Favorito".

Spring/Southbound (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A fantastic bit of funk from Fatback – and one of those records that still makes us scratch our heads, and say "Man, how can they make music this tight?" The sound is impeccable – bass and drums really right on the money, with a focus that's a huge influence on countless acts to come – and this wonderful way of still being loose and fluid, while being impeccably played – hardly the too-uptight sounds you might get from other stiffer funk acts of the second half of the 70s! There's a really organic, collaborative feel to the whole groove – which also comes across in the way the vocals are laid down – almost as if the whole group's stumbling onto the lyrics at once through their musical inspiration – on killer cuts that include "Spank The Baby", "NYCNYUSA", "Cosmic Woman", "Double Dutch", and "Soul Finger".

The album's a wonderful blend of Bay Area freedoms and some of the folksier and sweeter touches of east coast groups of the time – with instrumentation that includes organ, harpsichord, guitar, and lots of cool percussion – and a style that's got lots of wild elements, yet always manages to compress them down into cool sunshiney tunes! Titles include "Peace Comes Slowly To The Thrashing Fish", "Water Your Mind", "The Trip Note Song", "Man In The Middle", "Want Ad", and "Deer In The City". LP, Vinyl record album
